"I love Performance , Nic Roeg’s film, I thought that was fantastic. I’ve kind of grown up with it. It’s got such an otherness to it and a real kind of psychedelic, druggy universe. I also happen to think that Mick Jagger is amazing in it."
Cheech And Chongs Nice Dreams (1981)
"There was a time in my youth when I loved every Cheech And Chong film, but I think I’ve grown out of that. There’s one with, erm, what’s his name? Stacy Keach! He plays a copper and he grows this dope that turns people into lizards and he has a gun he puts dope in and he fires it into his mouth. That’s my main memory of that."
Christiane F. (1981)
"This is based on a novel about a junky growing up in Berlin and she’s obsessed with David Bowie. It’s a real junkies’ film, it’s desperately sad and dark and bleak and everything that heroin is. It’s not a jolly, no."
Easy Rider (1969)

Twin Town (1997)
"I loved Trainspotting , but Twin Town got called the Welsh Trainspotting which was a very unfortunate piece of marketing because they’re very different. I think in retrospect, Twin Town ’s got the place it deserves in Stonerville history. It’s got a huge fanbase. Go to any village in South Wales and everyone knows the lines."
